Notre Dame added a commitment in the 2025 class on Monday with Phoenix Brophy College Preparatory cornerback Cree Thomas announcing his pledge to the Fighting Irish.

The 6-1, 170-pounder earned an offer from Notre Dame in the spring and visited campus four times before his public decision, including two game day visits in October. He picked Notre Dame over the likes of Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and Wisconsin.

“One of the biggest things was that I can continue to practice my faith; it’s a faith-based school,” Thomas told Blue & Gold regarding his choice of Notre Dame prior to making his pledge public. “While talking to God, I felt it was the best decision for me.

“Another thing is the atmosphere; it’s amazing. There’s a family culture where everyone loves each other, and the coaches showed so much love throughout my recruiting process.

“Why not Notre Dame? Every time I went there, the commits were always super cool, and it came down to where I felt most wanted. It’s the best decision for my family and me.”

Thomas gives Notre Dame nine verbals in the 2025 class and is the Irish’s first defensive back pledge in the class. Six of the nine commits pledged to the Irish since September.

He ranks as the nation’s No. 372 overall prospect and No. 43 cornerback according to the 2025 On3 Industry Ranking. Thomas is the No. 2 recruit from his home state of Arizona.
